Lost Days Brings Brad and Jen Back Together Again!

Proof that Lost Days brings people together.

What?  It could happen!  Seriously, Lost Days did get an awesome review today on Red Adept Reviews.  My favorite part of the review:

Hayley was a wonderful character, deep and drawing a lot of empathy. She stayed in her age group throughout the entire novel, showing just the right amount of maturity.  I was very happy to read a young adult novel where the main character was not a ‘frivolous female.’

One thing in the interview portion that I realize now sounds a little off.  Red Adept sent me a couple of questions about the book and my process.  I happily answered, but I screwed up on one question.  Here’s the question and my answer:

Where did you get the idea for the novel?

I am a bigfooter.  I love the big guy.  The whole mystery and fantasy of it just thrills and fascinates me.  I’ve always wanted to write a book for young adults about the big ape, and I’ve always wanted to write a book from a female perspective.  I was raised by my mother and three sisters, and wanted to create a character that reflects their strength and independence.  Lost Days was the perfect vehicle for a cryptozoology story with a female protagonist.

My answer makes it sound like my Mom was a single Mom and my Dad wasn’t around.  That’s not true.  My parents have been married for over 60 years now.  What I meant to say is the women in my life inspired me to write a book with a female protagonist.  Sorry, Dad. Didn’t mean to leave you out.
